Huge thanks to Feej for getting out and about with her camera during the daytime and producing these Brighton Mod Weekender 2018 photos.

This is a selection of the photos taken on the Saturday (when the weather was fine), some of which were featured in the Brighton Argus today (if you happen to be local and want to pick up a copy).

Feej is a photographer in her own right, but she also works for a vintage shop in Brighton called All About Aud, which is a retailer with a 1960s / 1970s boho vibe if you fancy checking it out anytime.



Anyway, onto the photos, which are featured below from the 2018 event. I also have a few from 2017 that I will add in a little later. Of course, if you have any Brighton photos (or any mod photos past and present) you want to feature on the site, do drop me a line and we can have a chat about it.

    What’s with all the geezers (speaking as one of them)? Are there no youth in the Scene anymore?

    • It’s a good question. I suspect there are a decent number overall, but not in these photos.

      The age thing in the mod scene is a double edged sword. The 1960s mod scene was long gone when the mod revival and the ’80s scene was happening, so the people in that scene could make a fresh start creating a new scene. In 2018, a lot of people who were part of that still are – so it’s tough for someone young to start something new and compete. And I would guess that some young folk don’t want to go to clubs where people are the age of their dads of grandads! Also, are ‘youth cults’ still a thing for teens? Not sure they are these days for most. The world has moved on a bit.

      Not that I’m having a go – I’m moving on in age myself and still doing this. The people from that earlier scene are responsible for mod still being here and are still putting on and attending some amazing events, as well as creating some amazing stuff, wherher that’s books, music releases, fanzines, clothing labels or whatever. Without them, it would all be nostaglia and tribute bands and mod would be a far, far worse thing.

      In short, there will always be a youth element, but not on the scale of the 1980s.

  2. Fab snaps .. thankyou for capturing me and my daughter So naturally x

  3. Great images Feej – really good creative record of a brilliant day

    Good shout Modculture. 2nd revivalists like myself can merely celebrate it these days, as Mod was the culture of the young.

    Great pictures, Feej..fair play to you. There’s youth in the scene: there’s a new generation of Mods and they’re jumping right into the 60-64 thing! American black music mainly and smart clothes. I would say they are the 10%, but they’re increasing

  6. Hi,enjoy seeing all the pic’s and it reminds me of the good old days,did i say that!allways take them as it reflects what was a way of life the style of the people and the scooters,and hopefully will allways be. I was a mod in the 6TS and used to visit Brighton on my Vespa GS 150 in British racing green with Chrome bubbles and a sound from the exhaust to match its style.What I would not give for just one more weekend with French Blues (Doubs)visiting various clubs sleeping in the caves or bus shelters and a breakfast in J Lyons corner house opposite the pier.Unfortunately I am now 70 years young but still crave those day.Therefore no matter what the age once a Mod always a Mod,(Just to smooth to move).

    Hi I am one of the nearly septuagenarian original 60s Mods. I still have an affinity with the look and lifestyle of that decade, although, living out in the sticks, (Stoke on Trent) were always a year to 18 months behind the carnabetians. I still religiously attend the Brighton weekend and also any events within a 50 mile radius of home, Wolverhampton, Nottingham etc. There are still young Mods about, 16 to 40 year olds who are too young even to remember the 80s revival. What they have in common with us oldies, is a sense of style.

    Love the photos and love the memories of those golden bank holidays 1964/65/66 before I got married and sold my Li 150 for a mini cooper.
    Must try and get back to Brighton this year. I’m 71 in may.
